Guerlain Fall 2016 Makeup Collection Swatches

by Tavia

Hello beauties!

Guerlain Fall 2016 Makeup Collection also known as French Lady Collection (video) is being revealed beneath my eyes. I was so excited to see, swatch and play with the new products that I can’t believe the day has finally arrived. I’m jumping for joy as I’m writing this article as I can’t wait to be done posting and start playing with each product, dipping my fingers into that soft texture of the new Guerlain 5 Color Palettes and trying out the new Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation and Guerlain Multi Perfection Concealer with a hydrading and blurring effect. I will be telling you more about them in my next article and show you swatches like I did already on  Instagram.


Ready-to-wear eyeshadow shades on the eyelids, a flawless sweep of eyeliner along the lashes, a flattering colour on the lips… the products from the Autumn 2016 Collection are the perfect allies for quick, easy and spontaneous make-up.


Romania Launch Date – 1 September 2016 at Douglas, Sephora, Kendra, Marionnaud

Guerlain Fall 2016 Makeup Collection Swatches

In terms of products, the collection is pretty simple but in the meantime looks so classy, elegant and perfect for autumn. I was longing to see some new eyeshadow color combinations this fall and I chose Guerlain 01 Rose Barbare 5 Color Palette as my favorite. There are six variations of Guerlain 5 Couleurs Palettes (300 Lei / €60.50) each one featuring one very light eyeshadow color which can be used as a base, two basic nude shades which can be applied all over the lid and two smoky shades. The last smoky eyeshadow color which has the name Guerlain as a pattern is the darkest in every palette and can be used not only for a smoky look, but to darken the outer corners of the lid or smudged underneath your lower lash line.

All the swatches shown bellowed were made on bare skin, applied dry and without any eyeshadow primer. There is one matte eyeshadow color in each palette and from what I can tell after the first swatch and as a first impression, it’s the least pigmented but it does have a smooth texture. The rest of the eyeshadows have a satin or soft metallic sheen and incredible smooth texture. I will reveal more details in my upcoming reviews for each palette.

The two new Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick (185.00 Lei / €37.00) shades in Fall in Nude and Fall in Red are very autumn oriented, nothing bright or too edgy. I was actually wearing Guerlain 500 Fall In Nude Lipstick today and this is such a soft very light nude shade, that goes on so sheer and natural on the lips, perfect for a casual day. Both lipstick shades have the same amazing Kiss Kiss nourishing formula that doesn’t dry out the lips.

Guerlain Precision Felt Eyeliner (185.00 Lei / €37.00) comes in only one, black shade, and it’s perfect for beginners as it has a friendly pencil-type of applicator. Deep and dense, this ultra-black felt eyeliner glides on perfectly, delivering a faultless line and impeccable coverage from the very first sweep of the pen. Smudge-proof and stay-true, it even resists water and tears for eight hours.

An interesting change from Guerlain in terms of the presentation of their quads: do you think they look more DS now? Guerlain was once known as a de luxe brand, but the packaging on these quads looks, from the photos, a little down market.
As for the quality – some of the shades, especially the matte ones, look a little sheer but probably blend beautifully. My favourite is 03 Coque D’Or. Gorgeous shades.

Hi Genevieve! Most of the palettes I got them as testers, I only have two palettes in the original packaging and one of them appears in the main photo. The original packaging is a black, luscious case, refined and classy but without any distinguish pattern or motifs embossed. It’s just simple and classy Guerlain. The holiday 2016 collection I heard it will be WOW. Can’t wait for it, especially since it will finally be available in my country as well.

Hi Tavia,
I found your post because I was looking for information on these new eye shadows. I bought the new 01 Rose Barbare, last weekend, in fact I was looking for Les Violines and they did not have them anymore, only the new collection. The lady at the Guerlain stand then suggested me this new one. To be honest I have tried it myself twice, and I am not very impressed with the quality when compared, for example, with the Bois de Rose. The shadows seem very flaky and they do not stick properly in the eyelid, it seems that I need to apply layers and layers before it is possible to see any colour. If you have any suggestion I would appreciate. But the first impression is not great. In fact I am very disappointed considering the value.

Hi Ana! Actually Rose Barbare is my favorite palette from all the new six ones, considering the colors…I’m crazy about purples and pinks. Now regarding the quality of the shades, formula, texture and so on…I’ll write more about them in my upcoming reviews. Rose Barbare was actually the first palette I tested, the eyeshadows are not extremely pigmented but the color adheres to the skin even without an eyeshadow primer (this was how I swatched the colors). I anyway use TFSI or Urban Decay primer potion before applying the eyeshadows on my lid and I got along just fine with Rose Barbare. As I said they are not meant to be very pigmented or intense, more like a medium opacity, but the last two colors from each palette are the darkest and with a higher pigment. 🙂 Indeed there are other Guerlain palettes from this collection which have a better quality than Rose Barbare
